The Eagles made another trade on Saturday acquiring veteran defensive tackle Hassan Ridgeway from the Indianapolis Colts in exchange for the 246th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The seventh-round selection used by the Eagles was obtained earlier on Saturday in a trade with the Patriots.
The 6-2, 305-pound Ridgeway was a fourth-round choice of the Colts in 2016 out of Texas. In three seasons in Indianapolis, Ridgeway posted 41 tackles, six tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, and one pass defensed in 34 games (six starts). This past year, the 24-year-old Ridgeway had six tackles and one for loss in five games.
The Mansfield, Texas native was a two-year starter at the University of Texas where he amassed 92 tackles, 9.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries (one touchdown), and one pass defensed.
